Association Des Commandants De Port De France

Association Des Commandants De Port De France (ACPF)

L’ACPF est une association qui regroupe les officiers de port et officiers de port adjoints qui occupent les fonctions de commandant de port dans les ports français.

Elle a pour objet de :

  • Poursuivre les mêmes buts que l’IHMA et d’associer ses adhérents à tous ses travaux
     
  • Développer et pérenniser les bonnes relations et la collaboration entre ses membres
     
  • Assurer la représentation de ses membres auprès des Organismes internationaux, européens ou nationaux, ainsi qu’auprès des administrations, collectivités et groupements professionnels.
     
  • Le Président de l’association est actuellement M. Yves JAOUEN, Commandant du Grand Port Maritime de Nantes-Saint-Nazaire.


Le Role Du Commandant De Port

Le commandant de port dirige la capitainerie du port, armée par des officiers de port et officiers de port adjoints, fonctionnaires d’Etat. Leurs missions peuvent se décomposer en :

  • Sécurité nautique et organisation du trafic maritime portuaire. Ils ordonnent les mouvements des navires dans le port et dans ses accès, ils assurent la police du plan d’eau.
     
  • Sécurité portuaire. Ils contrôlent les déclarations d’arrivée des navires, le respect des consignes de sécurité et notamment celles concernant le dépôt et la manutention des marchandises dangereuses.
     
  • Protection des ouvrages portuaires et de l’environnement. Ils veillent à la conservation du domaine public portuaire, des ouvrages, du balisage et à la prévention de la pollution.
     
  • Exploitation portuaire. Ils attribuent ou autorisent les placements des navires à quai, veillent à la bonne marche de l’exploitation portuaire en garantissant le respect des lois et règlements.
     
  • Sûreté portuaire. Ils s’assurent de la bonne application des mesures de sûreté dans le port, et peuvent occuper des fonctions d’agent de sûreté portuaire. Grâce à une solide expérience de marin, le commandant de port est un acteur essentiel dans les opérations portuaires, apportant son expertise dans la gestion quotidienne du port ainsi que lors des crises nautiques et dans la conduite des projets portuaires.

 

Le Ports de France

Les ports de commerce sont divisés en:

  • Grands Ports Maritimes, établissements publics de l’Etat: Marseille, Le Havre, Dunkerque, Nantes-Saint-Nazaire, Rouen, Bordeaux, La Rochelle et dans les départements d’outre mer : Guadeloupe, Martinique, la Réunion et Guyane.
     
  • Les autres ports relèvent des collectivités locales ou territoriales, soit des régions, des départements ou de syndicats mixtes.
     
  • Les Grands Ports Maritimes sont dotés d'une autonomie financière. Ce sont des établissements publics à directoire et conseil de surveillance. Les présidents de conseils de surveillance ou d'administration sont élus. Les présidents de directoires ou directeurs généraux sont nommés par l'Etat. Les conseils de surveillance des GPM ont 17 membres représentant l'Etat, les collectivités locales et territoriales, les milieux économiques, et les personnels de l'établissement public. De plus, les GPM sont dotés d'un conseil de développement à caractère consultatif qui associe des représentants de la place portuaire, des milieux sociaux et associatifs, et des collectivités locales de proximité. Ils exercent les fonctions d’autorité portuaire, la gestion des outillages étant transférée vers des opérateurs privés exploitant les terminaux portuaires.

Dans les ports décentralisés, le rôle d'autorité portuaire est assuré par la collectivité territoriale compétente. Les pouvoirs de police des capitaineries restent néanmoins de la responsabilité de l'Etat dans les plus importants d'entre eux. L'exploitation du port est en règle générale confiée aux Chambres de Commerce par le biais de contrats de concession. Ceux-ci concernent notamment l'exploitation des outillages et équipements du port.

Latest News & Events

It was reported on 5 December that MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has received deck machinery orders for four escort and four harbour tugboats from Cheoy Lee Shipyards Ltd in Hong Kong. MacGregor winches have been specifically designed to maximise vessel performance by minimising equipment weight, it is understood. These orders were booked into Cargotec’s fourth quarter 2018 order intake, with equipment deliveries planned on a rolling schedule commencing in the second quarter of 2019 through to the end of the third quarter.

Evolution not revolution. Autonomous and remote-controlled ships are being trialled but seafarers, for now, remain indispensable to safe shipping. These were key messages apparent from a special session held on 3 December of IMO’s Maritime Safety Committee, which is celebrating its 100th session. This was reported on 6 December by IMO which kindly provided illustrations.

Delegates were first treated to a song commemorating IMO’s 70th anniversary since the Convention establishing IMO was adopted in 1948) as well as the MSC 100 session.

PORT OF GOTHENBURG

Thursday 27 - Friday 28 June 2019

How and with who will the ship of the future communicate?

This is the question that industry, ship owners and managers, ports, nautical service providers, university and research projects will seek to answer in this biennial EHMC seminar.  The day will include live demonstrations of industry products and a visit by boat within the Port of Gothenburg that will also take us around the harbour area.

The host: Port of Gothenburg

The Swedish shipping industry has recently been labelled a role model for the global shipping community because of the work being done to reduce emissions.  The Port of Gothenburg is not only Sweden's, but moreover Scandinavia's most important gateway for goods, cruise and passengers.  The hinterland includes three capital cities - Oslo, Copenhagen and Stockholm and almost 3o per cent of Swedish foreign trade passes through the port.

For further details please contact the EHMC Secretary, romers.ehmc@harbourmaster.org

Tanger Med

"Port Choice"

The 2017 seminar was a first in the history of our Committee, as it was held in the Moroccan port of Tanger Med. This was a consequence of the previous seminar in 2015, which was held in Marseille and where we reached out to our North African colleagues who are Harbour Masters, Port Captains and their deputies.

Tanger Med has built a leading hub port on the south shore of the Strait of Gibraltar. Beginning service in July 2007, the Tanger Med port is now operating amongst the world's leading ports.
